Dennis Rodman Was Barefoot On The Oprah Winfrey Show: "This Man Was Ahead Of His Time"

Dennis Rodman Was Barefoot On The Oprah Winfrey Show: "This Man Was Ahead Of His Time"

Dennis Rodman is an enigma, and no one can claim to have ever understood him. From announcing that he was marrying himself, then having pictures taken of himself in a wedding dress, to disappearing from practice at crucial times in the season, Rodman has always lived life to the beat of his drum. And the examples of this are endless, there is a reason The Worm is talked about even to this day; he is extremely good at unapologetically being himself. 

As such, at the height of his popularity, during the Chicago Bulls' second threepeat, Rodman was very sought after as an entertaining guest for television programs. Celebrities and athletes regularly mingle, and Rodman was involved with quite a few celebrities during his time. So it's no surprise that he made an appearance on one of the most popular shows of all time, the Oprah Winfrey Show. 


Dennis Rodman Came Barefoot On The Oprah Winfrey Show

Rodman also would not be himself if he turned up on the show in a suit like Michael Jordan and Charles Barkley, just answered some questions and left. His outfit was one of the big talking points of the evening. Rodman was dressed in a jazzy outfit, with a big hat and some chains. Most notably, he was also barefoot. And in the most Dennis Rodman move ever, he recently shared a clip from the interview on Instagram himself.

“It doesn’t mean anything. This just shows Dennis Rodman.”

Rodman had a simple answer to Winfrey asking him about what he was wearing, suggesting that this was simply him being himself. When the topic of the shoes came up, or indeed the lack of them, Rodman hilariously covered up his feet with some paper that had been lying on the table. He was also sporting orange hair, something he showed off after Oprah asked him to take off the hat. Fans were obviously in awe of the whole situation, reacting in the comments. 

"This man was ahead of his time."

"There will never be another."

"My GOAT man, just the best."

"You just can't hate Dennis, man."

"The Worm has always been true to hisself."

"Here is my idol."

"My top dog!"

"This fit is so fire."

"The original individual."

"Dennis was a god in his time."

"Still love this man to bits."

Rodman may not have been everyone's cup of tea, but the people that admire him, really admire him for his individuality and his confidence. There really hasn't been anyone quite like Rodman since he played in the NBA, and that level of notoriety would be hard for just about anyone to match.
